For those of you who do not follow my Facebook page, I shared these posts late last night and early this morning when news broke of the Supreme Court’s decision in rejecting the Texas case:
Many are saying WHAT they believe will happen with this election outcome, HOW it will happen, and WHEN. I think the more important determination is WHO and WHY…
So, the Supreme Court rejects the case. Are we finally at our Red Sea moment? Are we trapped with no way out – are all other paths totally blocked? I don’t think so. I have a sense we’re in for some more unexpected moments – because heaven’s end-game is so much bigger than any of us truly know.
Stand fast, because this is what faith does. It learns to trust – and persevere – and not determine an outcome based on what we see, what we hear, and what we think we know. I’m sure the Israelites never would have fathomed a vast sea opening up before their very eyes. And yet, it was God’s plan all along.
Faith in a supernatural God doesn’t give up hope and doesn’t give in. My faith will not rest on man’s response, but on God’s determination. I may not understand His ways, but I do know that God really loves us and isn’t worried about His plan – not one bit.
“Many are the plans in the mind of a man, but it is the purpose of the Lord that will stand.” (Proverbs 19:21)
Let me clarify for myself – I do not stand in agreement for President Trump’s second term because of the words of the prophets. I honor my fellow servants, but they are not the reason I stand secure. My confidence does not rest in the courts or the Constitution. My faith is fixed because I KNOW MY GOD. I believe He is going to deliver this nation because of HIS HEART FOR HIS PEOPLE. This is what remains unshakeable in my own lifetime of relationship with Him. I feel the burning passion in His heart for those who have been crying out to Him day and night in fervent prayer. I see the smile on His face and sense the joy in His heart for what is yet to come that is unseen by man. I see the fire in His eyes and the scepter in His hand as He leans forward with intense anticipation for the Great Reveal. I am convinced of His determination to HAVE HIS WAY – because HIS HEART BURNS FOR HIS PEOPLE!
I admonish you dear brothers and sisters – as we continue to contend for truth, liberty, and justice, be sure you know WHO you believe in and WHY. The only faith that will pass the strength test is that which stands on the person of Christ and the power of His extremely strong and capable right arm to save. Don’t let bad reports, disappointing news, or men’s failures deter you from true faith in Him. We must keep our eyes fixed on the Rock of our salvation, the Cornerstone of our faith, and the only One who can truly deliver His people from the traps of the wicked.
“He put on righteousness as a breastplate, and a helmet of salvation on His head; He put on garments of vengeance for clothing and wrapped Himself in zeal as a cloak. According to their deeds, so will He repay, wrath to His adversaries, repayment to His enemies; to the coastlands He will render repayment. So, they shall fear the name of the Lord from the west, and His glory from the rising of the sun; for He will come like a rushing stream, which the WIND OF THE LORD drives.” (Isaiah 59:17-19)
